Always Thank-FULL

Dr. Eric HaskinsPonderings8 Comments

B efore I sit down with family and friends this weekend and celebrate Thanksgiving, I just wanted to take a few moments and say how thankful I am for the many of you who have encouraged, challenged, and supported Create Space in a variety of ways over the past year. I am humbled by the growing interest and influx of requests for experiences and retreats in early 2017. There truly is a community forming and one that I'm eager to nurture and grow. And so from a gratitude filled heart I say thank you for enriching my life as we together create space to be enriched by Christ.

I shared the following post at the end of the summer, but there is no better time to reflect on a lifestyle of thanksgiving and gratitude than before a national holiday where it is at the forefront of our minds. Perhaps use it this weekend to inform how you will share with your family and friends.

I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart,
I’m writing the book on your wonders.
I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy;
I’m singing your song, High God.Psalm 9:1

Sneak peak of
Create Space 2017

  • Reform 500

    In light of 2017 being the 500th anniversary of the Reformation, I’m developing a series of experiences to engage dialogue and learning across Christian traditions.

  • Space Savers

    Short video based exercises challenging people to create space in the everyday moments of their lives.

  • Table

    90-minute gatherings for ministry leaders and others to dialogue on spiritual practices in a practical way.

  • Lenten Resources & Retreat

    Lent is my favorite season of the church year and there’s nothing like entering into Lent with a retreat and a guided community.
